I just had a very intense dream with a dolphin. (I don't want to post the dream.) I've had encounters with dolphins before in a few spirit journeys a while ago. I realized I've never researched this much, but I feel that it is very important at the moment that I finally pay some attention to my relationship (whatever it is) with dolphins.

So I wonder if anyone can give me some hints and inspirations about dolphin lore, your own experiences, good documentaries, inspiring fiction about dolphins etc.

Searching the forum I've already found very beautiful poetry by Entwife and I also know Poseidon and Mannannan are associated with dolphins, but that's as much as I have at the moment. I'm open to various stuff about dolphins, not just as the companion of a deity (although that could also be interesting). I hope getting various suggestions from others might inspire me in which direction I need to look.

Thanks!

Could the dolphin be your spirit animal, perchance?

Delphin was the Greek dolphin god, apparently. And dolphins were also associated with Apollo and Aphrodite. In Hinduism, dolphins were associated with Ganga, the Ganges River god.

I don't know about mythology concerning dolphins, but a good (although horrifying and sad) documentary on them would be The Cove. It's about hidden dolphin slaughter in Japan. If you're trying to have a closer relationship to dolphins you could watch the documentary, then write some letters and emails to people to try to bring attention to and a stop to the problem. I do something similar by writing letters and emails to politicians and the like about the wild horses, and it's one of Epona's favorite offerings.

Dolphins are sentient creatures, they display the same behaviors we do for the mostpart. *a dolphin in captivity was released, now wild dolphins have adopted tricks as a social thingamajig*

These human-like behaviors also include gang rape and killing for fun.

Perhaps nothing but Artemis of Stracuse is associated with dolphins.  Another story that maybe of interest

Thanks, that's interesting! I've never come across an Artemis of Syracuse associated with Dolphins. Do know ressources on that?

Most of the info for the Dolphins and Artemis of Syracuse comes from thier coins.  Most of the coins in question show the head of Artemis surrounded by dolphins or the head of the nymph with the image of the dolphins representing Artemis.  I've got an doctors appt this morning so will try to find some links this afternoon but wanted to give you somewhat of an answer.
